No joke — two blokes walk into an office and rewrite curriculum

Susan Martinuk, Calgary Herald

So . . . two priests walk into a bar. Oops, wrong joke. So . . . two priests walk into the Ministry of Education. One priest says, “I’m registering a complaint. I don’t like the way you teach sex education and talk so freely about sexuality in English, health and biology courses. The way you present these topics fails to affirm our deeply-held religious beliefs and our lifestyle of abstinence.”

Without any discussion, the Ministry officials tell the priest, “Why don’t you write the course on Sex Ed? And while you’re at it, write a set of guidelines to help teachers better affirm your beliefs and lifestyle in every subject and in every grade. We’ll make it happen — YOUR curriculum will soon be OUR curriculum.”

The rest.
